Looking out the windows this evening I can barely see the new trailer sitting in my driveway. All the streetlights are shrouded with fuzzy halos and I can’t see into my neighbours back yard.
The fog reminds me so much of New Orleans that I am sitting here all warm and cozy with a smile on my face and tingling with anticipation of the holidays to come.
A week from now and probably right around this time, we will be pulling out of the driveway and pointing the front of the car southward. What happens after that will be a totally new experience for us with our new trailer and tow vehicle. We will be like little kids at Christmas when we make our first stop in Great Falls, Montana. Won’t it be fun to discover how everything ‘really’ works on our first night away from home?
I’ve been trying to talk him into ‘camping in the driveway’ but he won’t go for it. I personally think it would be a great way to figure out how this thing works and what else I might need to pack. He’s probably wondering how his Touareg is going to drive and not about if I packed his underwear or not! When we do pull into the Walmart in Great Falls – at least we know that the store is open all night and he can buy some if he needs to. They let people camp in their parking lots because they know we are going to spend money in their stores. Smart move on their part.
With the upcoming trip constantly on my mind I’m going to post the pic of ‘The Grand Tour’ once again. Unfortunate circumstances have cancelled the sale of that particular bracelet and it is now back on the market. I’m also still taking orders for anything I’ve posted so far and will continue to do so right up until December 7th. If I haven’t got the trailer packed by noon on the 8th I might be in big trouble. Either that or we do a lot of shopping!
So without further ado – I give you ‘The Grand Tour’
